Online surveys are a great way to make money online for relatively little effort. In fact some of our readers make hundreds of pounds a year by doing online surveys.
While they won’t make you rich, it’s perfectly possible to earn £40-£50 a month from them. If you often have 15-20 minutes to spare in front of your computer at lunchtime or in the evenings, give them a go!
Always remember three things with online surveys:
- NEVER pay to join an online survey site – the best ones are always free (see the recommended sites below)
- We recommend setting up a separate email address for surveys (like Hotmail or Gmail) so your main address doesn’t get clogged up with survey emails
- Join at least five survey sites to get regular paid surveys (if you just sign up to one you won’t get many paid surveys to complete).
The top five online survey sites:
4. Inbox Pounds
5. Survey Head
Honourable mention also goes to Toluna (they sometimes pay you up to £15 to test products at home – which you then get to keep!)
